Prevalence

An R package for estimating disease prevalence by simulation: rprev

At ECSG (Epidemiology and Cancer Statistics Group), we primarily work with myeloid and lymphoid disease registries. Resulting from our successful collaborative research project - HMRN (Haematological Malignancy Research Network) - we have access to a large observational dataset of haematological malignancies across Yorkshire. From this we can estimate various measures of interest, such as the effect of standard demographic factors (mainly age and sex) on incidence rates, any longitudinal incidence trends, in addition to numerous statistics related to survival, for example noting any clinical or demographic factors associated with a high risk level.
